I've been reading reviews of the older Singer machines and the 201-2 model keeps popping up as a very good machine. I am interested in learning free motion quilting and wondered how this machine might do for that? I have a modern Janome that I will continue to use for piecing, but the harp is just not large enough for FMQ without straining. Since the new straight stitch machines with a 9" harp run $600 up, I thought about the 201 since it has a 8-1/4" harp. I've found a fully reconditioned one for $225.00. My primary hesitancy is the drop in bobbin, as I know the vertical bobbin is better for FMQ. Does anyone have experience, good or bad, using this model for FMQ?
